What is the Annual Fund?
Gifts to the Annual Fund are unrestricted, and go to where the need is greatest. In addition to the Alumni Annual Campaign, contributions also come from the Alumni Phone-A-Thon, the Faculty and Staff Campaign and the Community Campaign. All gifts raised from these campaigns during our most recent fiscal year were expended as follows:
- 60% Student Scholarships
- 30% Departmental Support (professional development funds, gallery exhibit support, speaker series, campus and community activities, publications, etc.)
- 10% General Operations (includes donor recognition, solicitation, Founders Awards for Excellence)
